I'm a husband to my beautiful wife, father to our children, Computer Science graduate from University of Central Arkansas. I love my wife, our children, computers, playing guitar (especially singing/playing for my wife and/or kids), bicycling (including taking my kids for rides in my bike trailer), woodworking, airbrushing, digital and traditional artistry, playing games with my family (traditional and digital), my poor Chevette that I had to sell, throwing knives, firearms, knot tying, rope making, whip making, and really just learning new stuff in general. If I don't know about it I probably want to learn about it, if only so I can make informed decisions about it.

My three favorite programming languages are Python, Lisp, and Assembly (though I'm not sure about the order of those last two languages...), and I currently develop in .NET languages, especially VB.

I think the CANSPAM act is one of the dumbest pieces of legislation in the history of the universe

Code I can write/read (where 1 is just barely, 3 is the average user, and 10 is the language designer/guru level):

  • Python - 6/10
  • C++ - 4/10
  • Perl - 3/10
  • Assembly - 3/10
  • HTML/JavaScript - 5/10
  • VB.NET - 5/10
  • C# - 5/10
  • Befunge - 2/10

comment Why are special characters such as “carriage return” represented as “^M”?
I knew you could actually use ctrl+i as tab (I use it on connectbot on my phone in vim) I didn't realize that ^M works the same way, and they work basically everywhere. Cool!

comment Why is my system reading/writing to C:\windows\installer an absolute ton?
All different .msi's I'm thinking that it's possible that it was some upgrades getting pushed out (it's a corporate machine)

comment Is it possible to (and how can I) setup keychain to use forwarded agent?
The goal is to stop having to unlock my keys on my other machines - I'm perfectly happy with them storing the forwarded agent key after I log out.

comment Command-line way to send keystrokes to a window open on a different X-session
I'm sure there are ways - I'm just not aware of them. Some complicated ones involve installing a simple VNC client and setting DISPLAY=:0 (or whatever display your other account happens to be on) and then launch the server and get to it from the client. But that might be excessive. LibreOffice might have a message protocol - I'm not terribly familiar with it because I use either Google Docs or plain text files in Vim (including LaTex)...

You could just kill the process - if you don't have any serious unsaved changes this would be simple. If you do, it should still try to recover the document next time you open it.
